  1. Item: Primare I22 integrated Amp with optional DAC board Location: Sydney CBD, NSW Price: $850 Item Condition: Presents as in new condition - not a scratch. Has never had anything stacked on top of it. The remote control has only minor signs of wear. Smoke and pet free home. Reason for selling: No longer used. Payment Method: PayPal, Cash - Pickup, or Australia Post COD. Extra Info: Bought brand new directly from Australian dealer in 2014. I am the first owner. Comes with original box, cables and user guide. Official specs rate the output at 2 x 80/160W but these figures are highly conservative. Stereo Prestige & Image magazine revealed that actual output at 8Ω is 2 x 105W (both peak and sustained). I found it to be surprisingly capable driving my B&W CM9 S2 speakers with ease. For more details and reviews see http://www.primare.net/product.asp?ProductID=50 Can send Australia-wide at buyer's expense. Pictures:

  4. Item: Used Schiit Ragnarok Location: Brisbane, Queensland 4053 Price: $1500 including postage around Australia Item Condition: Recently Repaired As it was not functioning. Fair on the outside. Reason for selling: Excess to Needs, No Longer Required, Can't Keep. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This Integrated Amp is roughly 3 years old and came to me non-functional from gumtree. I have got it repaired thanks to the work of AddictedtoAudio and Schiit USA. It is being shipped from Addicted to Audio to my address. It will most likely arrive on Monday or Tuesday when I pick it up from the Audio Tailor where I'm having it dropped off. A new one costs $2950 from A2A. I am pricing it at $1500 as it will cover express postage all over Australia and it cost me $300 to repair. Should be noted that I make no money off this sale. The main reason I'm selling it now is that my parents, whom I live with, are currently going on a trip to China to see relatives and I will need some funds to survive the month or so they are away.
  5. I've already reviewed the Ragnarok in my "Addicts Guide" thread but it made such a positive impression on me that I thought it deserved a thread all of its own. I'll cut and paste the review and the contents of a few following posts to make this first post a summary of the Ragnarok experience and then I'll continue with my cable and preamp experimentation here. Schiit Ragnarok. I’ve wanted to try something by Schiit for a while now but...well… I didn’t really need another DAC or pre and I don’t own a decent set of headphones, so it didn’t happen. Until Schiit decided to manufacture an integrated amp (the loyalists seem to view it as a headphone amp that just happens to be so powerful it can run a pair of speakers, but to me it looks a lot like an integrated amp) now we were talking! The first thing I noticed was that the amp runs slightly hotter than your average pie warmer, not only should it not be placed in an enclosed cabinet I wouldn’t even place it under a shelf. However, if placed on a surface with plenty of space above and around it then it does seem to be pretty happy with running hot (in other words my custom cooling fan is not actually required). The second thing I noticed was that its gain settings are slightly lower than I am used to, 9 o’clock on the volume dial on most amps will require the Ragnarok to be turned to between 12 and 1 o’clock. It isn’t really a big thing, but it is something you will definitely notice. On the specs front we have 5 inputs, 2 balanced and 3 RCA and one of each for the preamp output stage. 60wpc into 8 Ohms should drive 98% of speakers so no great concerns there (and I’ve found 3 separate cases on the web where testers have used the Ragnarok to power KEF LS50s, they require serious current, so this figure may well be on the low side of the actual number of watts on tap), nicely done Schiit. I also notice that Schiit do not list an input impedance for the Ragnarok, odd, but again, no big thing. I was using my Consonance cd120 as a source, feeding into the Ragnarok via Aurealis R1 interconnects and then into my Lenehan/ETI S2R speakers via Redgum speaker cables. Highs: Trumpets are nice and raspy without being hard or harsh, triangles and piano twinkle gloriously and delicately, cymbals and brushes are very crisp but not harsh. One of the best top ends I have yet heard on an integrated amp. 9.0 Mids: Clean, clear, uncluttered and beautiful to behold. Every instrument feels like it is happy to play its part and is given its own space to do so. Acoustic hang time feels very natural. It is just fun to listen to! 8.5 Bass: Very well behaved, articulate and defers to the mids and highs as required. Also clean and smooth with nice detail. 8.0 Vocals: Female: 9.0 The most natural and pleasantly real vocals I have heard from an integrated amp. Male: 9.0 Personally I’d rather be listening to the ladies than the guys but the Ragnarok makes not such distinctions. The vocals are given an ever so slight preference over the instruments, the vocals floated just slightly above the centre of my system and none of the instruments was allowed to get too close to them. The effect was very much like placing the singer out in front and then wrapping the band around them in a semi-circle. It was a very convincing effect. 2D Soundstaging: 9.0 The instrument separation also extends to stereo effects and placement within the soundstage. None of the instruments feel like they are locked into place it just feels like they are floating very still. Overall Performance Integration: Brilliant clarity and a good sense of rhythm combine with the soundstaging, the vocals, the imaging and the clear top end to present the impression that this amp not only knows how to spell words like “enunciationâ€, “iambic pentameter†and “spatial differentiation†it also understands what they mean and why they are important. This is one piece of audio componentry that has been put through a very prestigious finishing school. 9.0 Ability to Emote: Once you start to listen it’s got you, you can stop listening if you want to, but why would you do that? 8.0 (as a minimum, it rates higher once the ladies start to sing) Electric Guitar Test: 8.0 It’s good, don’t get me wrong it is very good, but it needs the soul of a rebel to do any better than this and it is too refined to be that rebellious. 80’s Rock Test: 8.0 Again, it’s very good but it’s calm and collected enough that it won’t go above an eight. The Ragnarok has impressed me greatly, it is a very detailed amp without a single trace of harshness to its sound. The vocals are clean, natural and a joy to listen to and instruments are very true to life without being fatiguing. Could I live with the Ragnarok long term? Hell yes! I've also been playing about with the Ragnarok as a preamp. I had a session with it feeding the ME580 last night and it was pretty good, more prominent bass (of course!) and a top end that didn't seem to lose anything at all but the vocals just didn't retain their magic and the more prominent bass got in the way (if only slightly) of the mid and upper treble. I swapped ICs between the Rag and the 580 from Aurealis to Furutech Alphas and got some more breath into the vocals and a little more mid range flesh but I didn't like the effect on the bass or the slight softening of the top end. All in all it was not a bad combo but not as well put together as the Ragnarok on its lonesome, the boys at Schiit did a very good job of matching the pre and power stages on this puppy. I've also got the Exposure Classic 28/Ragnarok to try. The Exposure/Schiit combo is very interesting, reminds me of a more refined Sansui 5900 in many ways. It's got that velvety exposure warmth and more breath to the vocals but the instrument separation just isn't there. It loses some detail and the delicate frequency balance is thrown out too, even so, it is quite more-ish! Sounds a little too much like vinyl to me, but I'm sure some would like it. One thing I have definitely noticed is that the volume dial position is only slightly above where I expect it to be when the Ragnarok is used as a preamp so it seems the power amp section of the Rag' has slightly lower gain than most. As I've said before it isn't really an issue but it is something that is easily noticed. I'm running the Ragnarok with my Halcro DM38 right now and the results are astounding, I'll get to the details later but for now let's just go with astounding. I've found this combo to be quite cable sensitive so it is taking some time to fine tune. I've yet to get to the Burson Timekeepers, but I will. Then I'll have to try some different sources too.
  6. Need a bit of advise, my current setup consist of an integrated amp with in-build DAC. It accepts the following connections: - AES/EBU input - S/P Diff coaxial input X2 - Toslink input - USB input I am not interested in hooking up a laptop/nuc/mac mini with the integrated DAC. What are my options? I do have a Cambridge Stream Magic V2, Normally I just use the App on Android to: 1.) Stream Spotify 2.) Browse my Plex DLNA library and stream flac files I can do the above via Bubble UPNP or the native Cambridge app. The streamer is connected to my amp via balanced out. It also have coaxial/toslink out as well. So, is it possible to connect the streamer to the in-build DAC via Toslink or coaxial and let the streamer handle the fetching and control? Not sure the Cambridge DAC will process any incoming stream. Ideally it should pass thru the stream and let onboard DAC in the amp to do all the D/A conversation. So, all I left to do is a nice clean interface on the phone or tablet app. Not a big fan to constant tweaking/updating/maintenance of a PC. The other option I am thinking is to acquire a Raspberry Pi and install Volumio or other similar distribution with have DLNA and Spotify functionalities. Volumio app is also available for on Android platform I think. No daughter board DAC with the Pi just plan old "mini PC" with USB to external DAC. Doable?
  7. Item: Stello AI500 Integrated amp with built in DAC Location: Safely ensconced in Sydney. Price: $1800 CURRENTLY ON HOLD FOR AN INTERESTED BUYER! Item Condition: Very good. Reason for selling: Amps come in and amps go out, it is time for this one to go out. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only (Buyer to pay fees if paying via paypal). Extra Info: available here: http://www.aprilmusic.com/page_YzTH92 I've reviewed this amp in my "addicts guide" thread (or one of them anyway, I suspect the second) but since the search function isn't up and running for the site yet I haven't been able to find that review. I'll keep looking but in the meantime the Stello AI500 is a Mosfet amp rated at 150 wpc into 8 Ohms and 300 wpc into 4 Ohms and there is more info available in the links below. http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/aprilmusic4/500.html http://www.soundstage.com/equipment/stello_ai500.htm https://www.whathifi.com/stello/a1500/review http://www.stereotimes.com/amp071411.shtml Comes with box, manual and remote control.

  8. Due to financial constraints I have been unable to continue my 'run' of integrated amps over in the addicts guide thread so I thought I might take a little time to consider what to aim at when (please let it be when, and not if!) my financial self becomes liquid once again. I'll number them for the sake of keeping track but the number doesn't necessarily directly represent my interest level (well... it does, sort of, but only for the top 10 or so), the amps are likely to show up on an "as discovered when finances are available" basis anyway, so, numbers just for the sake of ID (except for the top 10!). One of the good things about this audio hobby is that, even if you can't afford to buy gear, you can still have some fun talking about it. 1. Redgum RGi120 ENR. Discussions have already been entered into between myself and Redgum on this subject so unless I win the lotto or an amp falls off the back of a truck in front of me or something this will be the next amp to show up in my listening room. 2. An Exposure 3010S2, I've been wanting to know just how similar this puppy is to its 2010S2 brother for quite a while now. I'm hoping it's a step up, but even a step sideways would be worth hearing. 3. An Eloquence series integrated from Perreaux, I'm not likely to ever be able to find or buy one of these but I would like to be able to hear one, even if only briefly. 4. I asked Burson if they had any plans to produce an integrated amp in their Musicians series a while back, over 12 months ago, and while they didn't exactly say no I did get the impression that it wasn't in their future plans. I guess if they are targeting the desktop crowd then an integrated amp wouldn't make much sense unless they made a stand alone DAC to go with it. Anyway, if they ever change their mind then that integrated amp will slot in here. I'm a big fan of Burson, but I'd be a bigger fan if they made an integrated amp again. 5. An NAD C375 BEE (or equivalent model). I've heard a modded (had its caps ripped out and replaced and one or two other mods) version of an NAD on my old Osborns and it was extremely good, so I'd love to hear a standard model on the Lenehans. 6. An Accuphase model, not too fussy on which one since they are pretty pricey and it's about as likely to happen as the Perreaux amps at number 3 but there's no point in giving up just because it's difficult. 7. Plinius, a 9200 or Hautonga, I've only heard an older Plinius power amp so no real idea what these puppies sound like. 8. Consonance Calaf, I've been lusting after one of these for a while now, one of the Chinese brands that can actually mix it with the rest of the world. I'm pretty much over most of the other chinese brands. Or a Jungson JA88 D, almost forgot that one. 9. Heed Obelisk, I keep putting this one off. I've had the chance to get one on a loner program and all but at the time I was just too interested in other things. The easy opportunity has passed but the amp is not forgotten. 10. An Arcam amp, I've passed over Arcam amps at least twice in the past because something else caught my eye at the same time, well, no more, they have made the top ten. Are there any models out there that anyone else feels should be on my list? Remember I'm a solid state only kind of guy, no tubes (not that I'm completely against them as such, some of my friends have tube amps, I'm just not that fussed on them, that's all) and it has to be an "integrated" amp (so a volume control of some form is a must). Other than that it's open slather. Oh, some companies are just a given, Dartzeel, Leben and Gryphon for example I'd love to hear but they are so rare and so expensive that it isn't likely I'll ever be able to afford one, even second hand, so I'll put them, and others like them, on a 'targets of opportunity' list and group them in at number 11. They can't be forgotten, but they can't really be expected to show up either. So, now it's open slather. Edit: Updates include. 11. The big exotics, Dartzeel, Leben, Gryphon, Yammy AS3000, Rega Osiris, Musical Fidelity XA-1, Karan KA I 180, Vitus, Devialet, etc… 12. Modwright, KWI200 13. Roksan Kandy or Caspian 14. BMC C1 15. NAD D3020 16. Electrocompaniet ECI-3 17. Rega Elicit R 18. Musical Fidelity A5 19. Hegel H300 20. NAKSA 80 21. Conrad Johnson CA200 22. Audio GD Master 10 23. Densen integrated. 24. Harman Kardon HK990 25. Quasimodo
  9. Item: Jeff Rowland Continuum S2 Integrated Amp with optional MM/MC Phono Location: Briar Hill, Vic 3088 Price: SOLD Item Condition:MINT! Reason for selling: Different path (off to the rubber room I go...) Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Extra Info: Bought in April last year this was supposed to be "end game" for me (...yeah we've all heard that before) but like always the tide has turned and am at the crossroads i.e. looking into the abyss in either upgrading or even downgrading as frankly im no audiophile and maybe a lot of the Jeff Rowland goodness is wasted on me but I will say with 100% authority this has been the best sounding amp in my system bar none and if you don't believe me check out my journey so far... Also for all those tech heads keen to see whats under the hood see here... Those that need power hows 400w/8ohms & 800w/4ohms sound. Less than 1.5 years old and still current model. Comes with all original packaging , manuals and even the absolutely insulting cheap s**t remote (which even though pisses me off each time I pick it up must admit it does work a treat). Also check out my past feedback. Im not here to scam or rip anyone off and am just looking for a happy home for this while I seek therapy for being an idiot and selling this....
  10. Item: One Modwright KWI 200 Integrated Amp (no DAC or Phono fitted) Location: Sunny Nanango Price: $4000 ono (buyer to pay postage) Item Condition: Excellent, would suit new buyer. Reason for selling: Did a swap with a fellow SNAer, he gave me his Modwright and I gave him my Luxman L507u. I've given it a listen and found that it has a sort of active warmth to the upper mid range that I am not a fan of. It makes my Lenehan S2Rs sound quite a bit like a pair of B&W 805s. I will say that it has some of the best drums I have heard though. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Comes with manual, factory box and packing and the plastic remote control. This puppy is too heavy for Aust Post so it will be courier only. Pictures: Rear, top and side pics to follow.
  11. Item: One Xindak A600E (09) Integrated Amplifier Location: Sunny Nanango Price: $2000 plus postage (buyer to pay paypal fees if choosing to use paypal) Item Condition: Very good 9/10. Reason for selling: I have declared 2017 the year of keeping the components moving. I only have so much space now that I'm down here in SE QLD so I have to plan to make the most of the space that I have. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Affectionately referred to as "The Iron Ingot", this amp is heavy. It weighs in at 53kg but somehow manages to seem even heavier, I make mention of this for two main reasons. The first is that postage is going to be high, the second is that potential buyers may want to ensure the assistance of a well built friend when unpacking and manhandling the Xindak into position. Also, this is a large amp so please ensure that you can fit it into your audio rack ahead of buying it. Comes with remote, manual and original box and packing. (which I consider to be a bit on the light side to contain such a heavy amp so I will likely be beefing it up to a point where I'm happy with it). A couple of good, informative reviews can be found on the links below. http://www.audioemotion.co.uk/xindak-a600e-mk-ii-integrated-amplifier-1869-p.asp https://headmania.org/2015/08/17/xindak-a600e-09-version-integrated-speaker-amplifier-review/ However, just to clarify the wattage info in those links. There is nothing in the manual about how many watts the amp puts out in pure class A, I tend to believe the 30wpc figure because it gells fairly well with the heat put out by the amp and the minimum power draw of 310 watts mentioned in the manual. I believe the 60 watt figure mentioned in the second link is a total figure rather than a per channel rating. Pictures:
  12. Item: PrimaLuna Dialogue Premium Integrated Amplifier Location: Melbourne - western suburb Price: $3200 $2800 (RRP $5990) Item Condition: mint, no scratch or marks Reason for selling: upgraded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Product website: http://www.primaluna-usa.com/dialogue-premium-integrated/ It will come with: - Metal tube cage - Remote (very heavy - can be used as dumbbell) - 4 x KT88 Primaluna original - 4 x KT120 Tung Sol fitted - 2 x 12AU7 NOS Mullard CV4003 fitted - Power cord (original) - Manuals - Original packaging Bought this amp last year, I'm the first owner. I have been using this amp to drive KEF LS50, Magnepan 1.7, Harbeth SHL5 with no problem. I really like this tube amp because it comes with the remote and the tube cage which is very convenient if you have kids. The power tubes have been upgrade to KT120 (bought for $200), the 2 front preamp tubes have been upgrade to NOS Mullard CV4003 (bought for $180). If you buy this one no need to upgrade unless you want KT150 but in that case the tube cage won't fit. KT120 is already plenty of power. Due to its heavy weight (35kg) I would prefer pickup please. I'm happy to deliver if you are around Melbourne. Pictures:
  13. Item: One JLTI EL34 Integrated Amp Location: Sunny Nanango Price: $900 (plus postage) Item Condition: Excellent, looks almost new. Fully functional as well. Reason for selling: Tube amps have yet to convert me. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: One of Joe Rasmussen's modified Yaqin amps. Comes with original tubes, original bias screwdriver, original manual and the JLTI leaflet. I don't have the original box (thanks cyclone Debbie) so will have to use much packaging if it comes to prepping for long distance postage. For more info check out the link below. http://www.customanalogue.com/jlti_el34.htm Pictures:
  14. Item: April Music Stello AI700 Integrated Amplifier Location: Perth South Price: $2900 (Price Drop) Item Condition: Used with warranty (less than 1 year) Reason for selling: Too many Amps (Clearing some stuff) Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I bought this brand new in December last year from Addicted to Audio. Aus Retail price is $8500 (not available in Aus Anymore). Current U.S. price is $6500 http://samtechonline.com/apmustaiinam.html I'm only selling this coz I need money. I have owned many great amps in the past including: Parasound A21, Parasound JC1, Musical Fidelity A5, Krell S-300. The Stello is in my opinion the best sounding and the easiest (most practical) to live with. With 500 watts of ICE Power, you'll never want for more head rooms. But don't take my word for it, this amp is highly regarded by 6moons Audio and Absolute Sound. Driving Marten’s $35k, three-way, ceramic and diamond-driver Coltrane loudspeakers, Absolute Sound reviewer said: “I almost hate to admit this but the Martens [speakers] and that dinky April amp were simply gorgeous-sounding on Joan Sutherland’s soprano voice! The combo then proceeded to show superb transparency, neutrality, detail, bass, imaging, and realism on Blue Tofu. Guitar Gabriel? The most lifelike I’ve heard since the Scaenas at CES... The Absoulute Sound RMAF show 2012 ...Opening the chapter on class D, the Stello Ai700 shows how power efficiency and upscale sonics no longer have to be mutually exclusive by design. If you want a meaty very powerful push/pull type sound that's super friendly, accessible, zero maintenance, dead quiet, casually detailed—i.e. very but not pin-point resolved—and integrated to reduce box and cable clutter whilst being built exceptionally well... well, this latest April Music machine really has it all! Srajan Ebaen - 6Moons october 2012 You can read the full 6moons review here: http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/aprilmusic9/1.html Designed by the now legendary Simon Lee, He said "The Ai700 is far superior to the Ai500. That's not because class D trumps AB. It's because the Ai700's input buffer stage is around 4 times more advanced than what was in the S1" The Stello Ai700 is an advanced statement in applied engineering and hand-crafted in a beautiful chassis aimed at leading the listener to enjoy that very elusive musical nirvana. - Simple configuration, yet a high-end sound for all to enjoy. - Wide dynamic range and powerful drive for almost all loudspeakers at home. - Reproduction of delicate detail and realistic nuance of the source recording. - No heavy chassis. Not too much heat. Can run 24hrs/365 days. The achievement of the above-mentioned factors within a simple box is not easy. But April Music have invested almost two full years to make this mission complete. The most updated ICE power module ASX250 (like the gifted Eximus S1) is used per channel, each with a bridged mono mode to output 500W at an 8ohm load, to drive any given speaker without fatigue. April Music have devised the huge and delicate input buffer stage with separate power supply to make the sonic characters not like the other so-called class D amplfiers, but close to class A or A/B amps. None other than Alex Rasmussen of Neal Feay designed and machined the chassis in Santa Barbara, CA. So, with the Ai700, you can get the power, dynamics and the musicality. It is simple and equally beautiful looking at the same time.

The Stello is in my opinion the best sounding and the easiest (most practical) to live with. With 500 watts of ICE Power, you'll never want for more head rooms. But don't take my word for it, this amp is highly regarded by 6moons Audio and Absolute Sound. Driving Marten’s $35k, three-way, ceramic and diamond-driver Coltrane loudspeakers, Absolute Sound reviewer said: “I almost hate to admit this but the Martens [speakers] and that dinky April amp were simply gorgeous-sounding on Joan Sutherland’s soprano voice! The combo then proceeded to show superb transparency, neutrality, detail, bass, imaging, and realism on Blue Tofu. Guitar Gabriel? The most lifelike I’ve heard since the Scaenas at CES... The Absoulute Sound RMAF show 2012 ...Opening the chapter on class D, the Stello Ai700 shows how power efficiency and upscale sonics no longer have to be mutually exclusive by design. If you want a meaty very powerful push/pull type sound that's super friendly, accessible, zero maintenance, dead quiet, casually detailed—i.e. very but not pin-point resolved—and integrated to reduce box and cable clutter whilst being built exceptionally well... well, this latest April Music machine really has it all! Srajan Ebaen - 6Moons october 2012 You can read the full 6moons review here: http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/aprilmusic9/1.html Designed by the now legendary Simon Lee, He said "The Ai700 is far superior to the Ai500. That's not because class D trumps AB. It's because the Ai700's input buffer stage is around 4 times more advanced than what was in the S1" The Stello Ai700 is an advanced statement in applied engineering and hand-crafted in a beautiful chassis aimed at leading the listener to enjoy that very elusive musical nirvana. - Simple configuration, yet a high-end sound for all to enjoy. - Wide dynamic range and powerful drive for almost all loudspeakers at home. - Reproduction of delicate detail and realistic nuance of the source recording. - No heavy chassis. Not too much heat. Can run 24hrs/365 days. The achievement of the above-mentioned factors within a simple box is not easy. But April Music have invested almost two full years to make this mission complete. The most updated ICE power module ASX250 (like the gifted Eximus S1) is used per channel, each with a bridged mono mode to output 500W at an 8ohm load, to drive any given speaker without fatigue. April Music have devised the huge and delicate input buffer stage with separate power supply to make the sonic characters not like the other so-called class D amplfiers, but close to class A or A/B amps. None other than Alex Rasmussen of Neal Feay designed and machined the chassis in Santa Barbara, CA. So, with the Ai700, you can get the power, dynamics and the musicality. It is simple and equally beautiful looking at the same time.

  16. Item: Audio GD Precision 1 - integrated amplifier Location: Canberra. ACT Price: $500 plus post Item Condition:Excellent Reason for selling: No longer required Payment Method: Pick up - cash - pay pal - bank deposit Extra Info: I have owned this amp for a number of years and it has performed faultlessly, it was originally purchased off 1 of our members Decky. He had made a couple of changes to the amp which are 1- added a soft start circuit to eliminate the turn-on noise, 2- added 4 small PP caps on the rectifier to smooth the PSU ripple. http://www.audio-gd.com/Pro/amp/Precision1/Precision1EN.htm Provisionally Sold Pending Payment and Pickup Pictures:

  19. Item: Yamaha AS-1000 integrated amp, silver Location: Hobart, Tas Price: $750 Item Condition: Very good 8/10 for age Reason for selling: Surplus to requirements Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Purchased off SNA in October 2013 for $900. Freight was a bit over $100 to Tas at the time. It has been in storage for 1 year. The year before that I was using it as a pre-amp whilst waiting for my Cymer pre to be built. So it hasn't seen much work lately. I cannot make out any scratches or marks on the unit so it is in really good condition. However the remote has a hairline scratch (see pics) about 1 cm long. Great sounding amp that hasn't missed a beat. Nice MC phono stage. Many reviews on-line. As it weighs 22Kg I will give preference to a local sale. I still have the box (although some of the polystyrene is broken I can package well) so post is an option if I can't get a local buyer. Retail I believe was $2500 back in the day. Thanks for looking.

  21. Item: Cambridge Audio Azur 851A Integrated Amplifier Location: Melbourne Price: $500 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: I upgraded to a Primare Pre 32 A34.2 amplifier purchased from this site in September 2016. Hence, it is no longer required. I do not have the original box, so I am unable to post or courier. I am in Alphington. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash only. Extra Info: I purchased this new along with the matching Azur 851C CD player from Addicted to Audio in 2013. I still use the CD player in my system. Pictures:
  22. Item: Sansui AU-5900 Integrated Amp. Location: Sunny Nanango Qld. Price: $300 (plus postage, buyer to pay paypal fees if they choose to use paypal) Item Condition: Very good for an amp of its age. Still has great bling factor (see pics, the way it shines in sunlight is pretty damn cool). Reason for selling: I need room and have too many amps. Also I have moved up the Sansui tree to an Alpha 907NRA. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I picked up this amp from another SNA member, it had been checked over and given a clean bill of health by skippy124. I haven't had an ounce of trouble from it and it gave me motivation to move on up the Sansui line and try some of the higher spec amps. Time to let it move on though I'm afraid. Rated at 45wpc but known to perform at about 55wpc. Scroll all the way down for pics. There is no such thing as original boxes for amps of this age so I have it wrapped in industrial bubble wrap, double boxed and sealed up with enough packing tape to choke a dozen green turtles. In other words, packed up rather well. Item: Opoint O-150 Integrated amp. Location: Sunny Nanango Qld. Price: $350 (plus postage, buyer to pay paypal fees if they choose to use paypal) Item Condition: As new, I can't find any scratches. Bought new about 12 months ago via Ali Express for $606.09, the price has gone up since then. Reason for selling: I need room and have too many amps. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Rated at 150wpc into 8 ohms this little thing certainly does not lack for power. It is a bare bones design, no remote, no phono, no extras of any kind just three inputs, volume control and an on/off switch. It sounds pretty good, certainly very good for the price and it does react well to the replacement on the two op-amps on the preamp board with Burson discrete op-amps, but it isn't a giant killer as such. Good value though, and it does a good job with LS50s. It leaves with everything it arrived with, which is nothing, even the box it came in was unmarked and unlabeled. Item: Myryad MI120 Integrated Amp Location: Sunny Nanango Qld. Price: $400 (plus postage, buyer to pay paypal fees if they choose to use paypal) Item Condition: Very good for its age, cosmetically and electronically. Reason for selling: I need room and have too many amps. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Comes with a remote (not the original but one of the remotes that comes with the later Z series) and the manual for the remote, I don't have a manual for the actual amp. Rated at 60wpc into 8 ohms it is a nicely warm and detailed amp with good bass. Closer to the sound of the earlier Exposure amps than to the later Myryad Z and MX series. Pictures: Pics are in order (I hope!) Sansui, Opoint, Myryad.
  23. Item: YBA Passion IA350 Integrated Amplifier Location: Sunny Nanango Qld. Price: $3000 (RRP $7000) (Buyer to cover paypal fees if they choose to use paypal) Item Condition: Excellent, presents as new. Reason for selling: Not really my cup of tea sound wise, nice detail from the in-built DAC and nice rhythm from the amp itself but it just doesn't gel with my speakers. I suspect it would perform much better with speakers of higher efficiency than my 86db Lenehans. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Comes with remote and manual. Will be packed in original double box packaging (the inner box has a wooden frame, very solid). Purchased in early 2016 from Audio Heaven. http://www.audioheaven.com.au/passion-integrated-amp-ia350 Pictures:
  24. Item: Nuprime IDA-8 Integrated Amplifier Location: Sunny Nanango Qld Price: $850 ($25 is to cover postage) Item Condition: Excellent condition, one light scratch on top case (towards the right rear of the unit, can be seen on the third pic) Reason for selling: Just don't need it, or several of the other amps I currently have. I wasn't really taken with this amp and I don't believe it represents good value for money at its retail price of $1700. At my asking price however I think it is a much better buy. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Purchased via ebay, copy of receipt included in box. Comes with both remotes, blue tooth dongle and two usb cables, see pics for details. Comes with manual, pictured, in original box with original packing (the only exception to that being the plastic bag the amp came in, I can't find it so I've plastic wrapped it to stop it rubbing on the packing, see pic 5). Pictures:
